I will be debating on why the expansion to the southern U.S has helped the NHL and hockey in general

This round is only acceptance

The NHL expansion in to the south is bad because it will take years to get most teams on their feet and players will not get used to hockey for a few years. This will waste a ton of time and money before it ever turns a profit.

First of all, I hope this will be a good debate.

Now, my opponent stats that it takes years to get teams on their feet, which is something that happens regardless of which part of the U.S the team is in. Also, this can be debunked as the Vegas Golden Knights are currently leading the Pacific Division by a long shot. And other teams, like the Panthers, got to the cup finals within 5 years. Mind you, these teams get players in expansion drafts that are usually journey men players.

Next he says players will not get used to hockey for a few years, which really doesn't make sense, because hockey isn't that difficult to get use too. Finally, he states its a waste of time and money, which once again, happens too some teams regardless of location, heck, even some teams in popular locations were very unprofitable.

This looks like a fun debate. And since i"m opposed to Southern expansion the con position is very enticing.
